Mike Wojehowski enters his 2nd year as a member of 21CS Training Team, serving as Camp Director for our 1st-ever Harrison Area Summer Training Camp.
Wojehowski played baseball at SUNY Binghamton in 1991-92. Prior to college, Wojehowski graduated from Cornwall Central High School in 1991, lettering in baseball and wrestling, having served as team captain for both sports his senior year. Coach Wojehowski is currently finishing his 18th year as an educator for the Yonkers Public Schools. Currently, he teaches 6th grade students and doubles as both a District Scoring Leader for Mathematics and Professional Development Facilitator on a range of topics for colleagues, impressive achievements especially when considering this takes place in N.Y.S.’ 4th largest school district (39 schools!) outside of NYC. Coach “Wojo” also coaches for his son’s little league teams in the spring.
“As we looked to enhance our Training Team this past off-season, we found that Mike’s background in both baseball and education precisely matched one of the profiles we were targeting to acquire”, said Consiglio. “He’s been a leader on the field as early as his high school days, in multiple sports, and even competed at the collegiate level in a baseball program that was elevated to NCAA Division I status just a few years after his arrival. More importantly, when we looked at his leadership experience in a variety of educational contexts, it was clear that he exhibited the very kind of leadership and supervisory skills we seek and expect from our Camp Directors. His ability to effectively lead both staff and campers alike, in addition to communicating with parents, are very important qualities that will help Coach ‘Wojo’ serve in a vital capacity at the grassroots level.”
The staff at 21st Century Sports has done an excellent job working with all of the baseball programs in our town – from TeeBall to Little League to Babe Ruth & up through the Varsity program – over the last few years. They take a comprehensive approach to the ‘well-being’ of our baseball feeder programs and have helped us instill a systematic instructional program to pass on to both our youngsters and coaches. More imporantly, they have established personal relationships and connections with each of the different baseball programs in our town. This comprehensive approach enables everyone in our baseball community, from the time they are first able to throw a ball until they leave for college, with the feeling that not only have they been provided with the very best possible instruction, but have worked and interacted with our children and parents – as people who sincerely care about the game of baseball as well as each individual’s skill development.
Thank you for the fabulous baseball birthday party you organized and ran for our son Thomas! As parents who have hosted over a dozen outsourced birthday parties in the past, you should be proud to know that your company threw the most enjoyed and professionally organized party of any company we have ever worked with!
To quote the birthday boy: “My baseball party was the best birthday party I have ever had and ever been to!
“Great program, well organized! Our son learned all about the game. Made lots of new friends. Highly recommended!”
I fully appreciate the enthusiasm Bill and his staff have in communicating the sound principles of baseball. Far too often in the college recruiting process we see young players who have no understanding of how to play the game. Yet, they are unrealistically in pursuit of a college scholarship. I am not saying that every player who participates in 21st Century Sports will receive a college scholarship to play baseball. What I will say is that Coach Consiglio and his staff will provide players with the proper techniques to give them the best chance to have a positive baseball experience, no matter what level they aspire to play – college, high school or Little League. And as a parent myself, that’s all you can ask.
“My son loved every minute of camp!”
Coach Consiglio opened my eyes to the possibility of playing college baseball. He helped me in all aspects of my game; helping me to improve my skills on the field, my mental makeup about the game, and how to handle the college recruiting process. He was always there to offer honest and straightforward advice and continues to check up once my collegiate career began.
Coach Consiglio does a great job in developing the young player. He is very passionate and knowledgeable about the game and takes a lot of pride in seeing his players progress. I have no doubt he will lead his staff to undertake this same mission.
“Both of my boys raved about the camp. I’ve never seen them so excited every morning to go to camp!”
“My son is a 15u competitive travel baseball player who was looking to get additional instruction and I came across Coach Bill Consiglio through a camp over a year ago. My son has since worked with Coach Consiglio on many aspects of his game and I have to say that since then, my son has elevated his game and has become more confident. Coach Bill has a unique way of communicating with the kids so they understand what needs to be done. He has coached at the highest levels, including Division I and can very readily see things that other coaches do not. He understands what each child needs in order to succeed, improve and move onto the next level. If you are looking for a coach who understands the game and can help your child improve, I highly recommend Coach Consiglio.”
What do you do when your son wants only a Baseball Birthday Party for his 7th b’day?! I NOW KNOW – YOU CALL 21ST CENTURY SPORTS! Their staff was a HOME RUN! From the first time I contacted them to the last minute of the party it was a fantastic experience! Their baseball party team kept my son and his friends not only engaged but excited the entire time! In fact, when the party was over the dads were so inspired that they began their own post-party game! Weeks later parents were still approaching me and saying that my son’s baseball birthday party was one of the best parties their child has ever been to! Thanks so much to the staff at 21st Century Sports for making my son’s birthday party a day he will never forget….AND EVEN COMING UP WITH AN AUTOGRAPHED BALL OF HIS FAVORITE PLAYER! THAT WAS ABSOLUTELY CRAZY & UNEXPECTED!!! We can’t thank your team enough 🙂
Just wanted to let you know that, once again, your guys were awesome.
Professional, kind, and the kids had an absolute blast!
